“My little children, keep away from idols.”              - 1 John 5:21 (VOICE)
                I could have been the Season 3 winner of the mega-hit television series, American Idol.  Well, no, that’s not true. I didn’t even audition. I chickened out.  I suspect that, like so many others, I was drawn to American Idol because of its grandiose claim: win here and be elevated from “undiscovered” to your rightful throne! Idol seemed like an express train to a rare kind of fame…
                But like the biblical golden calf, the American Idol is a work of precise construction. It turns out that some of the show’s finalists, in fact, were already recording artists (Google “ringers of season 7”), some winners are bought not born (Google “textgate”), and even voted-off cream rises to the top (Google “Jennifer Hudson”).
                Idols may be shiny and even talented, but they are always hoisted by our fantasies and demolished by our spite. Idols skew our perception of everything, including ourselves. Worse, idols entice us into worshiping what looks good instead of what is good. The writer of 1 John ends the book by repeating this evergreen warning: beware idols who worship love but don’t live love.
Prayer:  God, you are the prototype. You are the real deal – your shine never fades and your dynamic love never hardens. Help us resist the forgeries of life. Mold us to take the shape of you.        - Rev. Naomi Washington-Leapheart
